The Brooklyn neighborhood DUMBO, short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, is another of the borough's formerly gritty, artsy neighborhoods turned high end real estate. Warehouses left over from DUMBO's days as a shipping port are now office buildings and condos. The restaurant scene in DUMBO caters largely to the lunch crowd: professionals from the tech start-ups that occupy the surrounding offices. While there are some great dinner options and bars, DUMBO is mostly quiet at night.
